Great child’s bedJessicaI got this bed to replace a toddler bed for my 5 year old. It was fairly easy to put together and after a year it still looks great. It has no noticeable marks in the dark finish and looks just like it did when I purchased it. It is sturdy and has a nice timeless look that I think she can enjoy for years to come.5

Great sizeHeimat1Great for storing toys and other small items. They also fit into the Ikea kitchen and are a good solution to store the kitchen utensils and food items.5
Have to return all of themTracyedwWhy does IKEA have bins that the lids that don't secure to at all? They barely even lay flat on the bins. The bins are nice, but useless without snap on lids. Total waste of time and money. Now I have to lug 6 bins & 6 lids 40 minutes back to the store.1
great sizebunnybunnyperfect size for my needs with strong sturdy walls to last5
Great boxAmyrg32This is a great storage box. I use it in my pantry for everything. Spices, snacks, etc..5
dschibThe box is ok, I really don't appreciate the IKEA logistics on restocking things. This seems especially bad in the US. A product becomes bad in itself if I have to drive to the store several times to get it and wait for several months until it is available again. Not the first time this happend.1
Great qualityIkealoyalcustomerBought this product and it's a very good quality for a decent price. Great for storage solution.5
Affordable and functionalmeee1I needed to buy containers to sort some of my random storage. I was able to find this box! Does the job quite well! I'm very pleased and will buy more in the future.5

For the things that take up space in our hearts and homes

For the heavy and dirty. The holidays and the different seasons. Your collections or bulky possessions. Someone else’s stuff. For just in case. For the things you want to remember or everything you want to forget. For clothes, tools, flower pots.

Sometimes it can feel like the things we have collected through the years control us instead of the other way around. And it can be tricky to find the right place to store all the things we need, but don’t use every day. Storage adapted to the rougher areas of the home, is one way to get around the problem. It can help you organize things in the not-so-organized garage, down in the basement, up in the attic or even under the floorboards. And protect your things from humidity, dust and scary spiders.

Different sizes help to sort things and thoughts

Do you want to get organized and stay that way? You’re not alone. With boxes in different sizes, it becomes easier to find just the right place for everything, both the nick-nacks and the big and heavy stuff. And you can make better use of the nooks and crannies you have at home. You can have small boxes for little things and tiny spaces, and large boxes wherever you have space to spare.

Organize. Store. Relax.

Sometimes it can feel like the home is a black hole where things get lost all the time. A lid on your storage box can be a simple solution for that. Some of the lids come with the boxes when you buy them, and some are sold separately. A few have locks that seal the boxes and protect what’s inside – it’s good in damp environments like storage rooms and garages. Many boxes become stackable when you put lids on them, but for safety reasons, you shouldn’t stack them higher than 35".

Hide your things within sight

A storage box doesn’t always have to be something you put stuff in, put away and then forget. But if you want to do that, colored boxes are probably something for you. With different colors for different things, it becomes easier to organize your belongings. Transparent boxes are perfect for stuff you often look for, like gadgets or tools. You get a quick overview of what’s inside the boxes without having to pull them out – something that can save both time and frustration.

Storage boxes tested for unusual everydays

Some boxes might look the same, but that doesn’t mean they are manufactured in the same way or with similar materials. The best way to find out if they can take everyday use (and some unexpected events) is to test them. Then you can be sure that the stuff you store – your collections, necessities and memories – stay undamaged and safe. Here are some of the tests we do for our boxes.

The lift test

To make sure the handles hold, and that the construction is sturdy, we have a strong machine that does a lift test. It imitates a person who lifts up a box with up to 110 lbs. Just like someone that stores seasonal things in the garage might do. The machine lifts the box up to 10,000 times. That’s equal to if you would take out and put back your holiday decorations once a year for more than 2,000 years

The push and pull test

Everyday life puts tough demands on our objects at home. That’s why we think it’s important to test our boxes. To make sure they can be dragged on hard and uneven floor surfaces, we have a machine that pushes and pulls the boxes, with weights inside them – up to 10,000 times – depending on which box we’re testing. The biggest boxes are tested with up to 110 lbs, or a collection of approximately 200 paperback books. With the test, we control that the construction and the materials work as expected. So you can drag and pull heavy stuff on rough floors for years and years.

The stacking test

If you have a lot of things to stow away, you might want to stack boxes on top of each other. It saves valuable floor space and gives room for other parts of life than storage. We always test our boxes by putting weights in them and then stacking them. The test is done to control that the lids, the wheels and the bottom of the boxes aren’t affected by heavy weights. It’s also a way to see how high the boxes can be stacked before they become unstable. To reduce the tipping risk, we recommend that you don’t stack them higher than 35".

Function solution

Hard to get apart?

When SAMLA boxes are stacked on top of one another a vacuum of air forms, which can make it hard to separate them. Just push or pull the long sides of the box lightly as illustrated above. This lets in a little air and makes it easy to separate the boxes.
